Re: VWR126X Mid Woofer and LD25X Silk Dome Tweeter Preliminary Info

Hi,

The shipment of LD25X tweeters will be released from customs early next week and they will be available for order on the 11th. We are still completing the documentation.

Thanks for your patience.

Bob

Yeah! What Bob said.

Everything is almost ready. Just hold on.

Any chance of a Metal (blasphemy !) version of the LD25X if the silk is a success?

Not a chance. They ring like little cymbals. Silk doesn't ring.

I find it kind of interesting how the DIY community seems to have a clear belief that, invariably, "Metal rings" and Silk doesn't introduce any of its own signature. .. and yet... many notable manufacturers seem to use only metal in their speakers.... KEF, Harman, Focal, Genelec, German Maestro, .... Anyways never mind. I don't mean to take this thread off its course. Your sig, however, probably applies to that topic.

Re: VWR126X Mid Woofer and LD25X Silk Dome Tweeter Preliminary Info

So after listening to both side by side you prefer metal domes? Then you have a preference. No material is perfect. Even diamond and, beryllium domes have their flaws. Terminating them correctly to a surround can be the biggest problem.

In my experience which is long and wide spread I have heard the odd metal dome that sounds good. I have heard a boat load that catch your ear to begin with. But over an extended listening they tend to be harsh. Metal domes are better at getting extended top end. But they to so many times with cone breakup creating the highest top end.

Coming back on topic, the LD25X really does perform well. It has a very rare level of excursion and exceptionally low distortion. Two things that are mutually required to get loud and clean. A tweeter that will not readily run out of steam. Do a bit of digging on SPL generated by tweeters and the spectral content of music. You will be surprised at how few can actually keep up. This little tweeter is one of the few that can keep up with room to spare.

Re: VWR126X Mid Woofer and LD25X Silk Dome Tweeter Preliminary Info

Biamped.

The reason why is that this is a really high efficiency setup. That was the aim in the first place. We clock in at and around 96 db/watt. Pretty much plus or minus 1.5 db from 30 to 20 000 hertz.

The high efficiency gives you output that just has to be experienced to be believed.
